Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference abstractpeer-review


Technology is enabling organizations to internationalize more easily than ever before. As a result, the traditional assumptions of tight coupling between land, labour, and capital that have underpinned economic geography models within Global Product Networks are become fractured, yet the implications of this for theory development remain unclear. Focusing on cases of internationalization of technology-based financial services companies (fintech), this paper seeks to shed light on traditional assumptions around strategic coupling in the global production networks literature in the context of international financial services. The findings are based on a longitudinal, ethnographic study of an Australian fintech organization.
